    Default New Tahoe owner...

    Hey y'all

    Just bought myself a 99 Tahoe. Pretty happy with it in the first few days of ownership... other than knowing I'll be in for heftier fuel bills that I'm used to.

    Just replaced the front rotors and pads today. Need to replace the hose to the power steering pump (found out yesterday that it's leaking). Will do that tomorrow. Noticed that the 4x4 low option seems to not be working properly. I'll be posting questions on that in the appropriate forum...

    Other than that the truck is really in mint shape. No rust anywhere, interior is mint.... One owner truck that appears to have been very well maintained and used primarily as a highway cruiser.

    Anyone have any suggestions as to what else I should check on it?

    Welcome to the site. Congrats on the new ride.

    Change the fluids and filters so you have a baseline to work from. Run the AC once a month during the winter just to keep the freon from homogenizing. Run some fuel injector cleaner through the system and try to keep the fuel tank above 1/4 to prolong the fuel pump life.
